You mean the Frog Lube video?

It's supposedly a "CLP" ... "Cleaner Lubricant Protectant". I don't see it doing the "C" well in the video, (heck the guy recommends using something else too) so I doubt it does the other two letters any better.

Also, while yes people apply oil (sometimes grease for long term storage) inside a barrel, it will increase chamber pressures enough that you're told to remove any excessive lubricant first by most manufacturers and shooting manuals. A very light coating is fine, but running a dry patch before shooting is recommended.

It's like putting grease or oil on your car's transmission input shaft so the clutch disk moves "freely", sure it's a good idea, except it's not good for what is going on around it.

Think about how little oil is actually going down the barrel of a GBB from the 2 drops per 9 magazine fills, and then factor in how much it really is per shot. It's pretty tiny amount of oil that is recommended in a GBB.
